Transcript of Geology Project

How would you survive a tornado? What do people do already? The final idea Thought processes Geology Project Period 6 People create storm shelters to protect themselves from tornadoes. The people can erase the hassle of adjusting to life in a bunker by living in a furbished one full time! woo hoo! Natural Disasters Every state is at some risk from this hazard.
Some tornadoes are clearly visible, while rain or nearby low-hanging clouds obscure others.
Occasionally, tornadoes develop so rapidly that little, if any, advance warning is possible. everyone worked equally on this project The entire house will be moved underground so that all food supplies and necessities will be readily available in the event of a natural disaster. Tornadoes affect the land's surface. They are violently rotating columns of air make contact with the surface of the earth. During a tornado, it is recommended to go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, or storm cellar. Unfortunately, storm shelters can be cramped and unfit for living for the duration of severe storms. Everyone participated in forming ideas.
Izzy and Kat made the prezi.
Kiersten and Brandi got the supplies.
Everyone agreed on the construction of the model. The structure will be naturally protected from the storm's powerful winds. On average, a tornado is on the ground for about 15 minutes, but this value is misleading because the average is heavily weighted by the rare but long-lived violent tornadoes. In exceptional cases, violent events can last more than three hours. The lifetime of a tornado is directly related to its intensity, with more intense tornadoes tending to last longer.

Tornado wind speed is ranked according to the Fujita Scale of tornado intensity. The occurrence of high-intensity tornadoes, though rare, is most common from March through June. Tornadoes are less common during the winter because air-mass boundaries are not as likely to be characterized by the strong temperature and moisture contrasts required to fuel powerful thunderstorms. Hook echo of a tornado in Champaign, Ill., photographed on a radar scope on April 9, 1953.

This was the first occasion on which the hook echo, an important clue in the tornado warning system, was recorded.
